Not too long ago the world witnessed the bumbled Afghanistan withdrawal that stunned us all. Then to make matters even worse, 13 of our Marines and close to 200 Afghan nationals who were previously freed were killed. This was all able to happen thanks to the massive incompetence of Joe Biden and his administration but it just gets worse.
There are those who have stated that Biden is directly responsible for the deaths of US service members and this is why.
After spending 20 years in Afghanistan, spending trillions of dollars, and capturing the most dangerous criminals in the world, President Biden thought it would be a brilliant idea to immediately evacuate the country. This detrimental action allowed the Taliban to take over who in turn, freed thousands of prisoners who were captured by American forces.
One of those prisoners was the suicide bomber who took the lives of 13 American troops.
“Senior Indian intelligence sources familiar with the case have told Firstpost that he was handed over to the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency by the Research and Analysis Wing in September 2017,” Firstpost reported. “However, the jihadist walked free on 15 August along with thousands of other dangerous terrorists held in the high-security prison, taking advantage of the chaos that ensued in the aftermath of the United State’s hurried exit and the Taliban’s swift takeover of the entire country.”
According to the report, the terrorist was an engineering student at the college in India before he was arrested for helping conduct suicide bombings in New Delhi.
“America’s disorganized retreat from Afghanistan has led to hundreds of highly-competent and highly-committed terrorists being set free to rejoin the Islamic State, al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups,” an Indian intelligence officer told the publication. “Literally a decade’s work on counter-terrorism has been undone by the US’ failure to secure key prisoners in Bagram.”
Business Insider reported:
Thousands of inmates, including former Islamic State and al-Qaeda fighters, were released from a prison on the outskirts of Kabul — Pul-e-Charkhi — as well as another facility at Bagram airbase as the Taliban called for a “peaceful transition” of power.
Afghan government troops surrendered Bagram airbase, located north of Kabul, to the Taliban early on Sunday. The base houses Parwan Detention Facility, which had around 5,000 prisoners.

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich broke the news late last week that Miller made the remarks during a classified Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.
Heinrich reported that once Miller’s recommendations to Biden to keep some U.S. forces in Afghanistan were shot down, “it became his job to execute on the withdrawal order – and eventually, decisions like abandoning Bagram were made because of constraints and troop caps imposed by the President’s orders.”
